tax code, governor romney and i both agree that our corporate tax rate is too high. so i want to lower it, particularly for manufacturing, taking it down to 25%. but i also want to close those loopholes that are giving incentives for companies that are shipping jobs overseas, i want to provide tax breaks for companies that are investing here in the united states, on energy, governor romney and i both agree, we have to boost american energy production. and oil and natural gas production are higher than they have been in years. but i also believe that we have to look at the energy source of the future, like wind, solar and bio-fuels and make those investments. so all of this is possible. now, in order foritous do it, we to have to close our deficit. one of the think thises i am sure we will be discussing is how do we deal with our tax code and make sure we are reducing spending in a responsible way and have the revenue to make the investments. this is where there is a difference because governor romney's central economic plan calls for a $5 trillion tax cut, on top of the bush tax cut, w
that they could empathize with a voter. i think that both of these men, both obama and romney, are a little bit more stiff, a little bit more reserved than the other two, and so i think that they're going to do the best they can. i think that they need to show empathy. i think that ultimately what matters to many voters out there is not only what do you believe, but what do you believe about my situation and to really listen to folks and frankly, to empathize with where they're coming from. >> former south carolina governor mark sanford. thank you for your time today, sir. >> my pleasure. thank you. >>> governor romney enjoying a bibit of a boost in the polls after the debate. a fox news poll showed he jumped three points among likely voter putting him a point ahead of president obama. he got some help in some key swing states as well. can he keep up the momentum? joining us now to break it all down, charlie hurt from the washington times, a columnist for the hill and a fox news contributor and daily beast columnist. welcome to you all. great to have you here today. we'll start with you. this b

. >> it was not only very important for mitt romney's candidacy, paul, it was very important for us. i think he both rescued his candidacy and rescued the election. and quite honestly, the election to this point was kind of boring. it was boring because both candidates in different ways were making it boring. the president, and there have been reports, was kind of coasting through, thinking he had no real competition from mitt romney. and romney was out there basically, expressioning conservative platitudes without elaborating on them. we get to the debate and what mitt romney does is answer the two things i think most voters were looking for, why do you think that barack obama's presidency failed and what ways have he failed it. and what would you propose alternatives, and better than president obama does? >> he did both of those, went right at the obama record and something the president declined to talk about himself and went deep on his tax policy and his health policy, so he put some entirely new baseline for the election. >> paul: kim, there are a lot of republicans were willing to start writi
like iran, for example. so i think governor romney was making clear both here, you know, in terms of the domestic audience, and also internationally with respect to the iranians, there's no question we won't allow them to develop nuclear capability and we'll stand by israel to act together. >> greta: he accused president obama about making a political decision about afghanistan, where we've lost over 2,000 troops there, many have come home and died from injuries. i thought that was where he was really the harshest on the president, saying essentially your plan is a political plan. >> the facts bear out what governor romney said. when president obama ordered the surge his commanders on the ground, first of all, asked for more troops, but then they said we need two full fighting seasons. we need to make sure we've completely dismantled the taliban, they can't come. that requires two full fighting seasons. the president came back and said, i won't give you as many troops as you need, but i'll stop the surge, pull the troops out before the second fighting season is done. there's simpl

for their respective candidates. both campaigns aggressively attacking the other over what was said. the romney campaign going after joe biden about his comments about the consulate in benghazi. state department officials testified before a congressional hearing that they had turned down requests for additional security at that consulate. contrast that with what vice president biden said last evening. >> we weren't told they wanted more security there. we did not know they wanted more security again. and by the way we were told exactly, we said exactly what the intelligence community told us, that they knew, that was the assessment. and as the intelligence community changed their view we made it clear they changed their view. >> at the same time right now as this event is going on the white house is saying, well, wait a second, while the say the department knew about the requests the president and the vice president didn't know about them, which might seem to indicate some sort of massive disconnect in the post 9/11 efforts to get all of the government he tk departments talking to each other ab
trip, surely and we would both be in it. >>gregg: you might have seen governor romney's performance at the first presidential debate but before that happened, did you catch this? >> what does romney have to do? >> romney needs to articulate a plan as to what he is going to do to change america. pat's right, he has to make himself accessible to the american people. beyond that, unless people get a sense that he has a clear alternative vision for the country and specific approaches to get there, he will not succeed. >>gregg: was the romney campaign watching "campaign insiders" that day? more on that ahead. >>heather: october is anti-bullying month and a horrifying case of bullying a young girl allegedly tormented by a grown man. my doctor told me calcium is efficiently absorbed in small continuous amounts. citracal slow release continuously releases calcium plus d with efficient absorption in one daily dose. citracal slow release. olaf's pizza palace gets the most rewards of any small business crit card! pizza!!!!!

federal budget deficits. what governor romney has done i think is make it easier to debate on both sides in terms of what are the next steps we need to take as americans to stay engaged and contribute so that this region doesn't become more turbulent and more dangerous. so it become as little bit more acceptable -- politically acceptable perhaps offering the libyans more assistance for their security forces or the president morsi in egypt is willing to stay in positive fashion for us and israel to offer more assistance that. is stone and style of debate i would welcome because i feel that politicians otherwise tend to fear we have to talk about retrenchment and withdrawal given problems we're having back here in the united states. that is not necessarily good for our foreign policy. romney pushed it in the better direction. jon: with our murder of our first ambassador in 30 years, more than 30 years. turbulent and dangerous is appropriate question. jenna: whether or not the tide of is receding. from that standpoint a lot of philosophy is made. a lot of foreign policy is comes whether you

't know both plans they don't know which way to vote according to their income. let's start with income tax rates. >> we have 6 different rates. romney prefers a tax code he would like to lower the rate across the board. the low rate would be 8 percent the top rate 28 percent. if you make 60,000 dollars you are looking at a tax cut of about $500 on average. obama would like to raise the rates for the top income earners to 36 percent # 39.6 percent. doesn't effect those between 200 and 500,000 you are looking for tax liability of $3,300 on aying for years. if you are a millionaire tax liability 185,000 per year. that's president obama's plan. what about if you are in the highest tax bracket for romney's plan? >> now we are looking at dividends and capital gains. what romney would like to do is he would like to eliminate taxes on capital gains dividends for those making less than 200,000 dollars keeping it at 15 percent for everybody else. now obama must raise the capital gains again on the top earning income individuals. he wants to raise it on them and take dividends to the ordinary rat
than in the first debate. >>shepard: one thing that governor romney has been criticized from both sides of the aisle, he didn't have specifics on a budget plan, and in came paul ryan as a vice presidential candidate, and the word was, well, not all of those specifics. it seems like they will have to put a laser on that. >>guest: that is what palm ryan will -- what paul ryan will do. but he is broad in his thinking and they don't not want him to get specific. that is what biden will push on. paul ryan may not have those answers. >>shepard: time will tell, the day after tomorrow. today, sandusky learned his punishment for raping little boys but first he had a chance to speak to the court. he reminded us what you need to do is blame the victims. because it is their fault, after all. incredible jerry sandusky coming up. authorities this mexico say this guy ran one of the most vicious drug cartels on planet earth. officials there say they killed him. and used fingerprints to check his identity. they sure. while he was dead and in a casket at a funeral home, wait until you hear what happened
romney manages to disc both pbs and nickelodeon in the same week. i don't know why he hates children so much. maybe it is because so many will grow up to be women, minorities and poor people, his mortal enemies. and a texas school district is forcing students to wear radio tracking chips and civil libertarians are crying foul. but don't they cry foul when adults are implanted with chips too? you can't make them happy. and come on down. the price is right -- "the price is right" names its first ever male spokes model. i don't know where this leads us as a culture, but i'm sure on a slippery slope. andy? >> see you at the half. let's welcome our guests. i am here with remi spencer. and it is gavin mcguiness, writing fore "talking ma" and street" and bill schulz who thinks he is on "glee" and it is dennis neil. >> a block, the lede, that's the first story. >> so does he not like our nation's tykes? apparently mitt romney hates children. he promised to kill big bird with his own bear hands, i believe. and obama's campaign hasn't forgotten. >> i am barack obama and i appro

go about doing that? >> i think that both ryan and romney need to do what they are doing right now, go to directly to the american people and give them their plan. most people need to hear something seven times before it actually sinks in. just continuing to do what they have done so far and just being very articulate. >> gregg: let me stop you there. the criticism of that plan, in terms of the approach of reducing tax marginal tax rates and increasing revenues and the cost it might add to the deficit is criticized as being non-specific. how do they respond to that? >> governor romney has laid out a framework. any time you have a plan such as this, you don't want to put all the details out there because there are negotiations that need to take place. the framework has been looked up by six different independent organizations including those from harvard and princeton. to say this plan will work. so the details don't need to be out there right now. the framework is very clear about what mitt romney and paul ryan want to do to strengthen our middle-class. >> gregg: i might say that t

legislation with the input of both parties. >> governor romney says this has to be done in a bipartisan basis. this is a bipartisan idea. this was a republican idea. governor romney at the beginning of this debate broke and said, what we did in massachusetts could be a model for the nation. i agree that the democratic legislators in massachusetts might be giving advice to republicans in congress about how to cooperate. but the fact of the matter is, we used the same advisers and they say it's the same plan. when governor romney talks about this board, for example, unelected board that we have created, what this is is a group of health care expert, doctors, et cetera, to figure out how can we reduce the cost of care in the system overall? because there are two ways of dealing with our health care crisis. one is to simply leave a whole bunch of people uninsured and let them fend for themselves, to let businesses figure out how long they can continue to pay premiums until they finally give up and the workers are no longer getting insured. and that's been the trend line. or, alternatively, we can

the politician and a policy person. a young person and an old person. i think on both scores, ryan will really help romney. we have to realize how much of obama's appeal is generational. when you you are putting on a v.p. debate with a 25 or 25-year, i guess, difference in age, and one who is kind of a haggard regular old-time bomb baftic politician, and the other, a very incisive, sharp, focused policy person, i think that you really are going to see ryan have a tremendous edge. the other thing is that ryan wrote the romney program. this is not just a candidate for v.p., his the intellectual leader of the republican party today. for him to be up there debating in a political debate is like, you know, it's like mickey mantle coming to bat because he -- he wrote all of these programs. he knows these budgets. he knows these figures and biden is only vaguely aqaipted with them. i think ryan is going to do extremely well and that will be decisive. i think we are looking now at a whole new band of states coming into play, michigan, pennsylvania, new jersey. a bunch of states that nobody would have

democrats of america executive director here. thank you, both. >> there is a lot to make of this. romney has come in with a couple of different policies. each foreign policy is different. this is the seventh time he has spoken. the president is very strong on foreign policy. i spent the past couple of years working with members of the military and veterans. they believe that the first priority is to keep america safe. we believe that president obama has a tested track record. >>shepard: the narrative is he wants to cut the defense budget, however you shake it out, what is the narrative. and people are buying it. >> we had an ambassador and three americans killed in our consulate. to a certain extent we do not have an explanation, very little outrage, we have seen the american flag burned by the militant and that does not show strength. as important, after the debate, the president looked weak on everything so showing he has strength on the front opposed to just the economic front which the president is weak on, that is a good issue. >>shepard: they thought they could turn it around but this
